Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Tonight was Snow Miku Live Broadcast! There hasn’t been a broadcast for awhile, so I was a little nervous…!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Shigure Kai Ni!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the 2nd Shiratsuyu Class Destroyer, Shigure Kai Ni! She comes with three expressions including her standard smiling expression, a determined expression great for combat scenes as well as a rather worried looking expression based on her half-damaged illustration.

The large ship parts on her back can be separated and equipped as cannons for her to hold, and the smaller single and double-barreled turrets on the sides can also be removed from the main ship parts and equipped separately, allowing for all sorts of different weapon setups! All of her turrets as well as the torpedo launchers also come with firing effect parts to really show off the full fire power of a destroyer – even in Nendoroid size!

She also comes with various optional parts to recreate both her ‘Valentine’ and ‘Summer’ seasonal outfits from the game! Enjoy the destroyer both ready for combat and in more everyday scenes!

“I am the 2nd Shiratsuyu Class Destroyer, Shigure!”

Shigure is joining the Nendoroids in her ‘Kai Ni’ upgraded form! Her cute hair that sticks out at the sides almost like animal ears as well as the single braid that lays over her shoulder both look so cute in Nendoroid size! Accessories like her hair accessory and neck tie also have lovely detail, and the outfit with slightly puffy sleeves as well as those ship parts all look so good!! (´□`。)

The mechanical, heavy feeling ship parts on her back have also been sculpted so nicely! Just imagine how strong she must be to carry this on her back all the time!

△ I also like the loose appearance of the fabric at the bottom of the barrels!

Not to mention the gentle smile on her face that brings out the personality of that kind and loving Shigure Kai Ni who is always looking out for others!

△ The smile on the Kai Ni version gives her a slightly more mature look!

However! You can also enjoy a more serious version of her with this determined expression! (`・ω・´)ゞ

But it’s not just her expression that has changed! You’ll notice that the double barrel turret that was on her ship parts has now been equipped onto her left hand! (●´ω`●)

Plus, the ship parts on her back…

…are fitted with a Nendoroid joint for all sorts of original poses!

But that’s still not all! The ship parts on her back can also be separated down the middle…

 “Enemy Sighted!

And equipped to both her hands!!

This is very similar to the transformation that you could do with the previously released 1/8th scale Shigure Kai Ni, so those who own that figure might find it quite familiar! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

△ The previously released 1/8th Scale Shigure Kai Ni!

The turret parts that connect into the back of the Nendoroid stand not only have a ball joint, but each of the two arm parts also has a joint to allow for various different angles and nuances while posing!

You can move the turrets in so many different ways that the possibilities really are endless!! I can’t wait to see some of the photos that this Nendoroid will inspire!! ★

To make the combat poses even more epic, she also comes with shooting effect parts for all her turrets as well as the torpedo launchers on her legs!! You can connect all these parts at once to create a powerful pose that shows off the fire power of a destroyer! ( っ•̀ω•́)っ

△ The impression is so very different compared to her smiling face above!

However… there is still much more to come! ☆

This time around the Nendoroid includes parts to recreate two of the seasonal outfits from the game!! (/ω\)


A bowl filled with chocolate, a spatula and an apron?!

The first seasonal outfit is the outfit that was available for the Valentine’s event!! ♥︎

She’s so cute!!! (*´Д`)=з

The pale pink apron together with her mixing up chocolate… the perfect example of a young maiden trying her best for Valentine’s day!! It’s so cute it almost hurts!!

The apron part is planned to be included like this, with the neck area also a part of the apron! When you want to transform her into Valentine mode you will need to first remove her standard neck tie parts and then put this on in place! (・∀・)


…a pink tube?!

The second seasonal outfit to be included is her special Summer outfit!! ♪

A whole different kind of cute!!!

An entirely separate Summer body is included to switch her out to this mode! The swimsuit itself isn’t damaged or anything, but the slightly worried look from the included half-damage expression suits is so nicely! ♥︎

The slightly opened up mouth is just so adorable!!

△ The white coat slipping off her shoulders gives a nice relaxed look! (*゚ー゚*)

By the way… if you combine the half-damaged expression with the Valentine body…

… (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾


It’s as if she is simulating passing over the valentine’s chocolate to her Admiral… covering up her embarrassment a little with the spatula!!! This figure really allows you to bring out Shigure’s charm in all sorts of amazing ways!!

Last but not least, she also comes with a ‘Night Battle Background Sheet‘ with some drizzling rain to match with her name ‘Shigure’ which means ‘seasonal rain’ in Japanese! (。・ω・)ノ゙

△ The sheet connects to the base with a special attachment.

Destroyers are strong in night battles!

Which means the all-out pose with all the effect parts really fits with the night battle background sheet to fully bring out Shigure’s battle charm! (´□`。)

From smiles, to embarrassment, to combat! Be sure to add her to your collection and enjoy all sorts of scenes! ♥︎
